Subject: short and sweet
Another great '85 show. Someone observed (on the audience recording reviews) that the band was never before or after ('85) the same.
I have to agree.

I know the 72's and 77's and the early PigPen years have their legions, and with good reason. But except for Jerry's voice (and health) and Weir's over the top antics at times - '85 is tough to beat.

Now, this show is a sizzler with Cassidy and Deal. But Do it in the Road (like the '86 and later versions of Box of Rain - IMHO) is best experienced live.
Bertha>Jack Straw is a treat.

Interesting thing about the first set - no song over 10 min. LA Fade and Rooster are just over 8 min.

Second set is good - but also short. Despite vocal miscues in Crazy Fingers, it deserves a listen (or three).

Also interesting how Jer and Bob can't seem to find a groove after Throwin Stones. Actually a nice rendition of Saturday Night follows, after the band collects itself.

4 and 1/2 stars.

God Bless.

Subject: An important new matrix- This is just great
Miller and crew have done it again- this sounds awesome- and to boot, the band is in great form- the Bertha singes- the Jackstraw soars- the Cassidy abhors (in a good jammy way)- and I have not even gotten to the Deal yet or set 2- well worth the stream/download(if you can find it seeded)
